Curling is one of those exercises that everyone just does. If you walk into any gym, you will probably see people doing preacher curls, dumbbell curls, and EZ bar curls.
But why are curls so popular? One reason is that they are so simple. A fitness novice can grab a dumbbell, start pushing out curls and get benefits right away. Of course, all novices should be trained to lift safely and with proper form. Doing bicep curls with a lightweight is one way to practice that form.
Bicep curls send blood to the upper arm right away, too, which can give you a feeling of strength and a temporary look of being pumped. If the feelings and look of your arm motivate you to work out more, that’s perfect.
The other benefit is that the curl isolates your bicep. It is one of the easiest ways to do this. Many women and men want toned arms, and doing bicep curls along with an upper-body program is a great way to work towards this.
